Sprint launches Mobile Security program

Sep 19 2006 - 11:47 PM ET | Security, Sprint Nextel

Sprint Nextel has introduced a new service dubbed Mobile Security that aims to help companies keep mobile data secure. Since most mobile devices only come with limited security features, a lost or stolen smartphone can be a major security risk for a company. Mobile Security covers data protection (through encryption and mandatory passwords), threat prevention (anti virus), and compliance (making sure only approved software is on the mobile device).

Sprint Mobile Security is a B2B service and is currently in trials with several firms.
